Seattle-- 

SPECIAL ALERT 

The dark side of the Force has pulled out all the stops.  The groups and individuals that seek to twist Medicaid away from the needy and consume it for their own purposes are out in force.  They are fighting with everything they've got to defeat the Deficit Reduction Act in the Senate.    

If you want to preserve Medicaid as a safety net for the poor and encourage responsible long-term care planning for everyone else, then now's the time to do something.  We recommend you drop everything right now and call your Senators, with special emphasis on the ones listed below.   

Tell them to vote for Medicaid, for responsible long-term care planning, and for the Deficit Reduction Act. 

THE NEXT 24 HOURS ARE THE WHOLE BALL GAME ON THIS!
